Praeter euntes autem blasphemabant eum, moventes capita sua.
Jesus autem dicebat : Pater dimite illis non enim sciunt quid faciunt.

Deuxième Parole (Luc, XXIII, 39, 42-43)
Unus autem de his qui pendebant latronibus dicebat ad Jesum : Domine memento mei, cum veneris in regnum tuum !
Et dixit illi Jesus : Amen dico tibi : Hodie mecum eris in Paradiso.

Cum vidisset ergo Jesus matrem et discipulum stantem quem diligebat dicit matri suae : Mulier, Ecce filius tuus.
Deinde dicit discipulo : Ecce mater tua.
